Blue Goniopora Flower Pot Coral
This Goniopora coral has really pretty bright blue coloring. The skeleton size of this coral is about the size of a baseball, but when the polyps are extended it is cose to 4 inches. The common names for this coral are flower pot coral, ball coral, and daisy coral.
Goniopora corals have extremely long polyps, sometimes up to 12 inches. By day, the polyps will be completely extended, and will typically be retracted in whole or part at night. They usually are columnar and massive, and rarely do they branch. They can come in a variety of colors, being green and brown (the most common) or pink, yellow, gray, and cream colored. Goniopora sp. prefer calmer waters, which explains their prevalence in lagoons, reef flats, rubble zones, and other shallow areas.
This coral is very healthy. It prefers lower to moderate light and moderate flow.
